    There's a difference between not buying anything from China, and openly supporting regimes that do shit like this.

    And the NBA is silent on this, disgraceful. Not to mention Mr. War on Trade, Donald J. Trump.

    No disrespect to Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd. RIP. Mask up and social distance when you protest.

    Britain will change its immigration rules and offer millions of people in Hong Kong "a route to citizenship" if China imposes new security laws, Boris Johnson has said.
    I heard about this on NPR yesterday.

They never had any intention of holding to their agreement with the British to give the city some independence, at least not in the long run. If Taiwan consented to be governed by the mainland, they'd eventually have to accept large garrisons of Chinese troops, and would become a puppet state within a couple of decades.

    The Brits have a long history of protecting the remnants of the empire, and its citizens.
